As the 2020-21 school year comes to an end, I want to extend a sincere thank you to the Trojan community for your patience and understanding as we navigated through remote learning, school closures, and everything that was associated with the pandemic that was out of our control. I am proud of the students for coming together and remaining #TrojanTrue throughout the school year. I congratulate our graduating seniors and wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
The school district will remain very busy during this summer as we will have lots of activities with our student-athletes, and summer learning will continue into summer school learning adventures. All students grades K-5 will receive a free summer bridge book to provide extended learning during the summer to prevent a summer learning slide. Continue reading message from the Superintendent….

1:1 Device Initiative
This is an exciting time in Findlay City Schools (FCS). The district is implementing a 1:1 program, one Chromebook computer for each student, in grades 3 through 12 and is adopting Google’s G Suite for Education for all grades. These changes will provide access to communication, resources, and learning tools like never before and are part of our journey to implement student centered learning. Students will be able to communicate, create and collaborate, as well as develop and apply their critical thinking skills in a new age of digital media that was not available to the world just a few years ago.
Findlay City Schools educators are dedicated to continuing to offer rigorous and engaging learning opportunities for students. We’re excited about working with our students as they learn good digital citizenship in a safe and responsible atmosphere. We will continue to be amazed by what our students create and how they incorporate the tools of their generation into the learning that will shape their future. Tools like a Chromebook will allow them access to software that will encourage their artistic abilities, improve their reading and writing, and push them to think critically as they spark new interests and insights into their journey of being a lifelong learner.
